    UK Coins in circulation...

    First of all Merry Christmas everyone! So while the kids received anything and everything to do with unicorns this Christmas, i got to replenish and make an inventory of my coins in circulations stocks such as the A-Z 10p, 50p and £2. I'll try and now make hay while i can and use the profits to buy more precious metals... Was quite chuffed to receive a load of the A-Z 10ps, Jemima Puddleduck 50ps and the elusive Northern Ireland Commonwealth £2 coin. They are all getting listed ASAP. Happy to try and help out folk on here who are collecting if I can!

    Silver Breaking Out?

    @HelpingHands exactly - we need to break through the trend line and hold (stay above the line). As you point out, price will often return to the trend line (or horizontal support/ resistance), be rejected by the line and move on up (or down). So what was resistance becomes support (or vice versa). We are a long way from a bullish trend but we have had a couple of days a decent moves and entering what is generally a bullish time for metals. We have seen many false dawns since 2014 since silver entered its trading range. Carry on stacking whilst the opportunity presents.

    2012 Diamond Jubilee Sovereign

    Suggestion, although It is simple and boring, but getting a 1oz gold coin of each of the major 'big name' gold coins in your stack. US eagle, Krugerrand, Britannia, Kangaroo, Maple Leaf, Philharmonic Get whatever is the best value at the time +1 to +3% over spot That should keep you busy for a few months at least Then continue with the "whatever is best value" at time of purchase, this may end up you are buying silver 1oz's one month, gold the next, 2 oz coins next month, a fairly price full date run of something else the next This "whatever is best value" has got my a very weird, mixed, varied stack of anything and everything but I know what I bought on the day was good value/best available. Also, point to note from a good few years stacking now, there is no harm in just keeping stacking your fiat debt tokens in the bank until the right "good deal" comes along on eBay/dealer or forum Keeping some fiat spare, landed me x100 (2007) 1oz silver UK Britannias from eBay at £15 each / £1,500 Happy to sit on them for years to come, but they sell in single units hundred of times for £30+ all day long on eBay. I have also had lots of good deals from on the forum from Arshimo2012 and DavePanda who always price keenly and fairly.

    Sunday metal chat why we stack

    Happy Sunday! As most of you have heard by now, we left everyone and everything but our 2 youngest boys, 2 cats and a dog 10 days ago. Thanks to our stacking and prepping plans we were able to purchase 2 acres in the country and we are taking the metal shop full time. It has been a busy time here since we arrived at noon on Friday the 30th to our "New to us" only seen in pictures Home on a leap of faith. We have been working to get the shop and household up and running. It is a big change to go from a county with a 2 million population to a 20,000 one. The road we live on is dirt and washed out during the storm Sunday, it also had a lighting strike that knocked down our dead tree but luckily missed our truck. The neighbors power line came down and had to be repaired. The previous owners did not empty the shop as agreed and that added about 2 days to shop set up, Monday was filled with carpentry work to sure up the walls, electrical work to get lighting, climate control and furnaces powered, meanwhile we are setting up our house, new washer and dryer and misc bad we all need when we move. We both grew up in very similar small towns so the change feels more like going home, but our kids have not lived like this and they seem very happy. We have Captain K registered at school and we now have a business PO Box, the internet guy arrived and informed us there are no cables so they will have to run one from the main road 1.5 miles away, so we may get internet some day(December 28th until the line is ran), for now our mobile hot spots are working. There are a lot of changes, like we forgot about mud and the need for lots of door mats, dealing with learning how our well pump really works,teaching the boys how to stack the cord of wood we had delivered, and how to get the wood stove running at its best and yesterday we used our new chainsaw and cut some more wood as cool weather comes and goes here. We are all tired and sore and really ready for some normal to happen, but with this large change in our lives we have to figure out what that will be. The miner and our teenager ran water lines(the teenager dug the trench) finalized the new light install and they fixed cabinets and installed a wood stove for the shop and a small entrance door. We did our first live pour 1 week after arriving, our neighbors even joined us for the show and we had a blast! Our boys are very happy, even our pets seem happier, the return to a simple life was definitely the best move for us. We feel that all the prepping and planning we have doing in the city for years has helped us be in a better position to make this life change and it affirmed our stacking plans! We will keep stacking, prepping and now homesteading! You can follow our journey on YouTube, our new address is: happiness in the south! We highly recommend if you are dreaming of doing something, start taking steps to make it happen! Thanks for reading and Happy stacking!

    I am working on 3 chests, they have coins, silver items, original flintlock pistol, spyglass, gemstones etc. This is an older photo in the early stages but you can’t see too much of the contents, some silver, a 6oz skeleton hand and the occasional jewel. Fun but time consuming and potentially expensive 🤨

    Full sovereigns

    Full sovereigns: 2009 card is torn, box isn't bad. 2010 card is okay, dink in box. 2010 (birthday box), card and box are fine. 2012 inner card is badly torn, outer is okay. Has replacement capsule. I think the coins other than the birthday one were put into presentation boxes then back into the original packaging when I bought them. Asking £255 each which includes UK Special Delivery. £250 each posted UK SD for two or more. I can provide individual photos if anyone wants them. I haven't tested these other than by weight. Thanks Mick

    I never needed a licence for that to be honest. But those will come in handy during the next American civil war. I see how well people behave during small natural disasters, or the power going out. Americans will eat each other alive. I dont think anyone can prepare for that. Even if your in a bunker, there isnt much stopping someone from digging it out of the ground. The number one thing you need to prepare is yourself. Your mind and body. With that you can achieve all things.

    They come in rolls? I discovered this (albeit german) shop who gives them out in sacks from the mint 😀 When you buy 200 of them - a small 'master sack'? Could get me into trouble...

    Fake half sovereign?

    No I've never tested any sovereigns. I don't feel it's necessary; If it's the right weight and size then I'm happy so long as it looks right for what it's supposed to be.

    Getting rid of assets to buy silver

    The flip side is you cant take it with you so striking a balance between life experiences and financial security can be tricky. You dont want to be lying on your death bed one day thinking about how many oz's of cold metal you have sitting in a box with nothing else to put a smile on your face.

    I've moved this into general because I've updated this for more general stacking and added gold support. This is a screenshot of the overview page that allows me to look at my stack at a glance. The numbers here are made up because to test some functionality in the code more general data was required. I am considering making this into a private website that others can use (anonymously of course) if there is interest for it. Anyway here is a generated on the fly overview page of a made up stack. All this is calculated on the fly in seconds and displayed in a web page by giving it nothing more than a purchase date and price for a given coin/item. For any who missed it the second screenshot is the item page where you can add purchase date and price etc. Comes from the need to better manage my own small stack mainly for seeing what I currently have. Not doing nay more work on it until after the new year though.
